Life, I'm glad to say, is no longer through the lens darkly for Lindsey Carlos Clarke, the widow of world-famous Cork photographer Bob Carlos Clarke.
The beautiful blonde is getting married to professional golfer Andrew Raitt, in June in London. She met him in Barbados four years ago and he proposed to her in Thailand last year. Lest we forget, Irish legend Bob Carlos Clarke committed suicide on March 25, 2006. He left The Priory hospital in south-west London and threw himself in front of a train.
So Lindsey, who has a 19-year-old daughter, Scarlett, with Bob, deserves some happiness. Clearly, she has found it with Andrew, 11 years her junior. The wedding will be a veritable who's who of London glamouratti -- indeed at the launch of Bob's retrospective Peep Show at Lindsey's studio, The Little Black Gallery in Chelsea, last Wednesday everyone from Boris Becker to AA Gill to Tamara Beckwith, and Marco Pierre White were present.
So expect some great names on the day as well as some great characters from Co Cork. "I'm really happy with Andrew," Lindsey told me, "and I can't wait for the big day."
